Bear Path Acres! Huh? What is that? Where is that? Why are we traveling there? These are certainly questions overheard since the first time our permission slips were sent home.
We were originally scheduled for this field trip back in March, however, the heavy snows of February caused it to be postponed until today. Now I’m thankful that we didn’t go in March, and were able to enjoy our visit today with dry, sunny, and warmer weather conditions!
Faithfulness saints have “googled” Bear Path Acres and checked out their webpage frequently since February. They’ve read, reread, and diagnosed every single picture of the website! They could practically conduct the tour for other guests as we traveled the paths from animal to animal. They even asked questions in regards to the writings found on the webpage. Highlights of our trip included racing a lion, cheering a bear who could perform tricks, and hand feeding several of the animals! A BIG thank you to Charlie who serves as a volunteer at Bear Path Acres and led us on our journey!
Bear Path Acres is home to a wide variety of animals. It is located between Franklin and the North Carolina line. It’s quite a ride, but well-worth the travel! It is privately owned and relies on donations to maintain the site and care for the animals that call it home. Several of the saints were overheard discussing how old you had to be to volunteer. Perhaps you can load up your car for a family outing to Bear Path Acres!
